The long-awaited follow up, to Between The Three Bridges a memoir by PJ Taylor about life on Upper Carey’s Road, was unveiled on Friday December 4th at Punche’s Hotel.
The new book is titled: “Who’s Sorry Now” and continues the chronicle from 1962 to 1969 after his family moved from Carey’s Road to Garryowen and is the second in a series of five.
In his book PJ continues the story of growing up in a household of four children with an alcoholic father in the 1950s. Remembering the highs, the lows, the joys and the grief of loosing his mother when he was 21.
But overall it is a light-hearted tale, he insists.
School friends from CBS and St Joseph’s Scouts joined PJ and his family and one former resident of Carey’s Road even flew in from Hawaii to attend the launch.
A member of the audience which gathered to witness the launch said,”What many people don’t know about PJ is that he had never written anything prior to his first book last year it’s just amazing and a beautiful read.”
There was also and interview conducted by John Prendergast of Limerick’s Live 95 FM on why he started writing late in life.
“Hopefully this time next year there will be another sequel in the series I am planning. I’ve already started writing and it’s called: “Mam Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.”
